Spring ‘Uniform’

how to wear a poncho over 40

Remember these fabulous, baggy yet incredibly slimming trousers?  I know I showed them to you just a couple of weeks ago, but I couldn’t resist the temptation to do another post on them… That’s what happens when I find something I like: I wear it all the time. And I mean really ALL the time…

So, here we are, the baggy trousers again, this time with one of my favourite long-sleeved t-shirts (which has been featured on the blog more times than I can count…) and a checked poncho.

The wool poncho is something of a spring / summer staple for me: easy to wear, goes with anything, and warm on cooler days. I have a few of these ponchos, in different colours. I wear them instead of a jacket, I guess I like the idea of having something comfy and snuggly to wrap around myself…

      Thanks Greetje. The background is a railway station a few stops from where I live. I always pass it on my way to the airport and often think that the wall art would make a great backdrop for a photoshoot…

      Thanks, Ada. I actually have 2 of these t-shirts. The exact same shirt. That's how much I like it…

    Spring uniform. I don't think of your outfit as an uniform. I also don't think that you are in a style rut this spring. You look great and the outfit is interesting. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style.

      Thanks Nicole. Well, it's a 'uniform' in the sense that I tend to wear something like this most of the time, and the poncho is sort of a staple for this time of year…

      Thanks! I've wanted to use this location as a backdrop for a photoshoot for a while now, the wall art is quite impressive and fun.
